I have been working out of SA for 185 days, and have done the 60 consecutive days.I want to know what tax I can be exempt from. As this period falls between October and May, does the tax I paid on my annual Dec bonus count? If I stay out of the country for another say 2 weeks on leave, does this amount also count?Or if I work out the country again in July-August, how do they calculate the tax you avoid?Also what proof do I need to show I was working abroad?

Exempt Income Guidelines

The amount that you could claim as exempt is the portion of income earned while you were out of the country, the period out of the country is based on a calender year and not a tax year and will include that leave if the leave formed part of your employment entitlement.
